The six authors (most of U. of Glasgow, UK) update this illustrated review guide for students and practitioners of clinical biochemistry, to be used as a supplement to courses and in-depth texts on the subject or as a clinical reference. Approximately 100 subjects organized under the themes of core biochemistry, endocrinology, and specialized investigations are covered in two-page overviews that discuss essential vocabulary and information. Topics covered include: interpretation of lab results, water and sodium balance, acid-base concepts, glucose metabolism and diabetes mellitus, dynamic function tests, thyroid pathology, subfertility, nutritional assessment, coma, skeletal muscle disorders, and selected inherited disorders.
